Understanding Jewish Ceremonial Art: A Conversation with Dr. Vivian Mann


Though we often focus primarily on photography and goings-on here at the John Cleary Gallery, it is also of importance to us to celebrate and acknowledge other artistic conversations occurring in the Houston area.


This Sunday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m., The Mollie and Louis Kaplan Museum of Judaica will be featuring a lecture with internationally renowned Jewish art scholar Dr. Vivian Mann entitled Understanding Jewish Ceremonial Art.

According to

"She will include objects that are on display in The Mollie and Louis Kaplan Museum of Judaica and others that are not, adding commentary to explain them and put them in their appropriate artistic and historical context. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by a wine and cheese reception to allow the audience further interaction with the speaker."
